public Miss Anna II vers, the .soprano,
has a voice that in the upper register is
remarkably pure, clear and sound, and
its compass, we are assured, is so wide
that she can sing the U above the
staff. She sings with taste and ex
pression. Musically, Miss Anna Hyers
is the most noticeable in the com
pany. Miss Emma Hyers has a good
mezzo-soprano voice which she uses
judiciously. Mr. .1. W. Luca, bari
tone, and Mr. Wallace, tenor, have ex
cellent good voices. Mr. King would
put to the blush many tenors of his op

the quality of its tone. The acting is
liberally interspersed with plantation
and jubilee songs, which in truth give

In the death of Thomas J. DrjTer,
Oregon lost an exemplary citizen and
the newspaper fraternity an honored
member. He was the founder of the
Oregonian. and, in 1801, was appointed
Minister to the Hawaiian kingdom.
On his arrival at San Franc'sco, he was
enterLained by the Reporters Union,
then numbering eighteen members.
The only survivors of that association
to-day are Win. Huciner, of the Ger

In the annals cf modern book publish
ing, nothing has been accomplished to
approach in excellence and cheapness
the dollar series of good books published
by T. B. Peterson &: Brothers, of Phila
delphia. Some of the very best works
in contemporaneous literature have al
ready been given a place in this series.
Not only have the publishers culled in
chbicest fields for rare works, but they
have enshrined the worthy works select
ed in sightly and durable caskets, and
wisely and praiseworthily they have ig
nored the catch-penny device of printing
a famous work from worn type on paper
of wretched quality, and then binding it
badlv in llinisv paper covers- As a con
tinuation of this remarkable dollar se
ries, the Messrs. Peterson have just is
isued - Woman's Wrongs," by Mrs. Eilo
rat being an entirely true yet graphic
description of the legal wrongs that
English wives and mothers wed to
worthless husbands are compelled to en
dure. Since the days when Charles
Dickens wrote in the prime of his great
powers, there has been no such arraign
ment of a bad English law as Mrs. Eilo
rat truhfullv and powerfully portrays in
this wonderful and absorbing novel.
Other volumes of the dollar series make
it the best, the largest, handsomest
and cheapest series of books ever pub
lished, and are all isssued in uniform
stvle. in V2 mo. form, bound in red, blue
or tan vellum, with gold and black sides
and back, and are sold at the low price
of one dollar each, while they are as
large as any book published at$l 75 and
S2 00 each. Every family and every li
brary should have in it some if not a
romfiletesetof Petersons' dollar series.
